president obama governed. it did it in a 7500-word print magazine story. it ran online on the new website. it was one of the most highly trafficked stories of the year. there were more than a million page views so far for the long magazine article. i think it's challenges a lot of those incorrect conventional wisdom about what people will and won't read line. i think it's the kind of ambition that we're aiming for. which is to say to breakthrough the clutter and recognize that you can live in the twitter news cycle but don't have to be a captive of it. good journalism tends to do very well both in the dwitter world and beyond. and i think, you know we're not looking to unleash a flood content. we understand we are all drowning in information. we're connected with "politico." we're a part of "politico," which every day as you know, is pumping out tons of stories and items and updates and videos and news letters inspect is a robust journalistic echo system that already exist. what is the mission of a new daily public

're uneasily reckoning with now as that phase in our history seems to be coming to a close and a new chapter is beginning. >> okay. thank you. i'm going to move ahead because i think, are you confident that the obama administration and congress can agree on defense cuts that do not impair significantly the ability of the united states to remain the world's dominant superpower? >> no. i, you know, i think that there is an outline of at least a small budget deal to be had when you talk to reasonable members of both parties in congress and there are still some who belong in those, that category, you can come up with some, some mechanisms for increasing revenue and some mechanisms for restraining the, reducing entitlement costs that could at least get us to a small budget deal for the next two to three years, with some relief for, you know, to avoid another round of sequestration and so forth. whether we can see our way through the political paralysis to get there is another question all together. i think that, so i am by nature an optimist. i want to believe rationality will prevail but so far
